FOSTERING INFORMATION SESSIONS
A new way of working in this present climate.
Once you have read all the material we would usually recommend you attend one of our information sessions. However, due to the current COVID 19 situation we have now suspended all drop-in services and community information sessions. We are currently working on ways to deliver online versions of the session so keep watching the website and social media for updates.
Until then we are instead asking you to contact us if you want to progress your interest. Although now home based the recruitment team are working as usual, so can still answer your questions and help you to get the fostering process underway.
This would take the shape of a longer phone discussion with a social worker who would ask about you, your household make-up, your motivations to foster and also your experiences with looking after children, either through your employment or family relationships.
After your call, if you and the social worker have agreed we can send you out a more in-depth application form that will tell us a bit more about yourself. If you would like we can also arrange a call from one of our existing foster carers. This will allow you to ask questions and hear from the horse’s mouth what the day-to-day of fostering is really like.
If you have read the information and feel fostering is for you please contact the team by email or through the enquiry form on this site. Please include any preferences of day and time for your call back and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
